Norwich City vs Barnsley Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Saturday afternoon (15:00) game features two sides in the middle third of the Championship table. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Norwich continued their recent slump as they suffered a third successive defeat going down 2-1 at Bolton ahead of the international break. The Canaries were a little unlucky according to the expected goals data but only had a late Josh Murphy consolation to show. Barnsley made it back-to-back victories as they defeated Birmingham 2-0 at Oakwell in their last fixture. Tom Bradshaw put them ahead after just two minutes and Zeki Fryers secured all three points with a 68th minute goal. The two meetings between the pair last season were won by the home side with the game at Oakwell ending 2-1 and the tie at Carrow Road ending 2-0. The Tykes have taken nothing from their last 11 trips to East Anglia.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Given that Norwich have not won any of their last five the price on a home victory looks much too short and I like the look of Barnsley and the draw in the double chance market as they have looked decent on their travels in recent times. The Canaries backline has looked out of sorts in recent weeks and I like the visitors to go over 1.5 goals as they have done in two of their last three on the road while each of the last three for Norwich have seen them ship more than 1.5 goals.

Norwich City Preview

The Canaries are on a run of three straight defeats which before that saw an unbeaten eight game run and before that three defeats from four. It has then been an inconsistent season for the Norfolk outfit who sat in 13th going into the break. At Carrow Road, they have struggled failing to win any of their last five and losing each of their last two. These games are highlighted by a lack of goals with just one of the last seven going over 2.5 goals. The 15 they have netted this season is the fourth lowest in the division and contrasts with the season before where they finished joint top-scorers. The defence is up and down and while they are in the lower reaches of having conceded 20 goals they have also though kept seven clean sheets.

Norwich City Team News

Steven Naismith (groin) is back in training while Nelson Oliveira (calf) is a doubt. Alex Pritchard, Matt Jarvis (both ankle injuries), Alex Tettey (calf), Jamal Lewis (knee) and Louis Thompson (Achilles) are long-term absentees.

Barnsley Preview

A run of seven points from their last three has seen the Tykes enter the international break in good heart as they have climbed up to 16th. Manager Paul Heckingbottom continues to do good work on a small budget which has seen him linked with the vacant Sunderland managers job. Away from Oakwell, they have taken seven points from their last three with victories at Millwall and Burton and a point against Sheffield Wednesday. Each of their last five and six of their last seven on their travels have seen both teams score. The 22 goals they have netted this season has them in the middle of the attacking ranks and is led by the six goals of Tom Bradshaw. Their defence has conceded 21 times and they have only kept two clean sheets all season.

Barnsley Team News

The Tykes have no registered injuries or suspensions ahead of this game.
